91% of Black Ops 3 UK sales were on PS4 or Xbox One

Up from 67% for Advanced Warfare sales

91% of all physical sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops III sold in the UK were for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

According to UK chart company GfK Chart-Track, just 8% were picked up for last-gen consoles PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, leaving just 1% preferring to pick up the game on PC.

The chart does not account for digital sales.

As PlayStation 4 snagged the lion’s share of the market at 48% (43% chose Xbox One, 5% selected Xbox 360, and 3% picked it up on PlayStation 3), that means, overall, Sony secured 51% of all physical sales.

In our review, we said that: “at this point, at least two of the Call of Duty developers (Treyarch and Sledgehammer), have it figured out. They now have a three-year development cycle, which means that technically, each individual game is not a rushed “annual” iteration. While the campaign could certainly be a lot stronger, Black Ops III is living proof of that concept.”

If you bought Call of Duty: Black Ops III, what platform did you choose and why? Did the lack of last-gen single-player campaign influence your decision in any way?
